@kaihendry Simple but not a perfect solution - you can set the number format to display in thousands (basically divided by 1000 instead of 1024) by adding a comma to the custom number format. (you can add as many as you want - each comma will display divided by another 1000). Remember that the number itself will not change, just the format...

65,536

 

Displays as 66 instead of 64. Problem. Argh.

 

I guess I can just apply a formula along the column?
